Description Elias Probst 2011-01-14 06:55:18 UTC
Version:           unspecified (using KDE 4.5.95) 
OS:                Linux

When creating a new note on the desktop containment through drag'n'drop, the newlines of the text are stripped.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Select some multiline text in a terminal
2. Drag it to the desktop containment and drop it

Actual Results:  
When creating a new note from dropped multiline text, there are no newlines preserved.
When dropping multiline text into an already existing note applet, everything works as expected.

Expected Results:  
I'd expect the newlines to be preserved correctly when creating a new note through drag'n'drop.

The issue might also be caused by the desktop containment itself to which the text is dragged to and then handed over to the new applet-notes instance.

I'm using the grid desktop containment here.

Sorry, have to re-open this bug.

This problem does still exist in 4.7.2.

→ Select some multiline text in kwrite
→ Drag it to the grid-desktop and drop it
→ Created note doesn't contain the newlines
